Wedding Photos!

Yes, you read that right. Our wedding photos are in! It was 2 days ago, on Dec 2nd that I got an e-mail from our photographer (Melissa Atle) saying that our gallery was complete. I was at work and I was so excited! I immediately told Raf and he made me wait until I got home to see them so that we could look at them together. That was one of the hardest things I ever had to do lol. I was only a couple hours in my shift and had to wait 5+ hours to get home.

After I finally got home, Raf and I sat down and looked through every single photo together. We smiled, laughed, giggled and made our own commentaries looking through the photos. It brought us back to that very day, November 3 2017, when we tied the knot. We felt like we were there again. We felt every photo and remembered each moment as it happened.

Our photographer, Melissa Atle, and her 2nd photographer, Kristen, were a dream to work with. They were ninjas throughout the day. They took shots we didn’t even know they were able to take. They captured every single emotion that day. Booking her was easily one of the best decisions we made during our wedding, and trust me, wedding planning requires a whole lot of decision making. Married couples got my back. One thing I should also mention is that we got our gallery only 4 weeks after our wedding. I mean, seriously?! I’ve heard stories where people had to wait months and got to the point of having to follow up on their wedding photos with their photographer! 4 weeks has to be some kind of record, lol. Lucky us! Lastly, we were so grateful to have received the photos a day before we celebrated our first month of marriage. The timing was absolutely perfect. It came right on time and we’re so happy we were able to look back and reflect on one month together through our wedding photos. That being said, here are a few sneak peak photos from our wedding day!

Picked up THE dress!

I’m fully aware that my blog has ended up being majority wedding related, but you guys….36 DAYS TO GO! Ahhh! Yes, I had to look it up on our wedding website just to be sure. So, as you can see from this blog title, I did, in fact, pick up THE dress today! My cousin Dee (who is also one of my bridesmaids) accompanied me, which worked out perfectly because I needed to have someone there to learn how to bustle the dress. My appointment was at 11am and we were out of there in less than half an hour. The kind man that helped us took the dress out and had me try it on and it fit like a glove. It felt so much better wearing it altered to me and my body. The length was perfect and the fit was perfect. It was a quick and easy transaction. The countdown continues. It’s getting SO real.
